Easiest way to implement sending to a POP3 server


I have a Yahoo account with POP3 access. I would like to setup my Linux system to send mail through that account. Is there an easy way to to this? I have SUSE v10

Thanks, but how do I implement that on Linux. I'd like sendmail to go through Yahoo.

Ahh didn't realize you were trying to get Sendmail to use your ISP's mail server as a forwarder..You never mentioned sendmail in your original post.. that is a slightly different story.

Take a look at this link for starters..

However pop3 is for retrieval. What you need is smtp access. If yahoo provides that service you just have to configure the right server, user and password in whatever agent you want to use to send your mail.

Thanks, it's the one account I actually pay for so I think I have both smtp & pop, at least I have configured mail clients in the past for both send & receive.
